TODAY IS A GOOD DAY. I'M DANCING IN MY OFFICE.
THE LIMITED EDITIONS 7" AND 12" OF VIDAL BENJAMIN PRESENTE DISCO SYMPATHIE ARE OUT AND THERE ARE SO GOOD!!!!
Disco Sympathie is a collection of obscure French disco, boogie and synth wave jams put together by renowned Parisian crate digger Vidal Benjamin. Vidal makes us rediscover the sound that was so characteristic of a certain early eighties french scene: wacky, happy, dancing and at times even poetic.
This 7" and this 12" are a preview of the release in october of the compilation Disco Sympathie on Versatile Records.

Some people hate him, a few love him. Despite this kind of considerations, Carbon Cream did a very nice mix especially for Italo Deviance. Don't expect a four to the floor mix. Don't expect italo disco in his "classic" sense. The italo feeling is under the carpet. Or hidden behind the curtains (maybe). If this sound trip fits to your hears or you want to discover (probably) some unexpected music and buried treasures, you can check what is going on over there.
